Yet another typeface with simplicity as it's core element. Concord is derived from a successful type family 'Accord Alternate' by giving geometric touch to it. Hence Concord is a geometric sans serif. It has large counters which enhance readability. It is available in seven different weights for emphasis.
I am happy to announce that after a long period of development, my type family Acorde is available for purchase at http://www.willerstorfer.com
About the typeface:
Acorde is a reliable workhorse for large, demanding design projects. It was designed to be perfectly suited to all different sizes, from small continuous text to large headlines and big signage. The typeface’s name is derived from ‘a’ ‘cor’porate ‘de’sign typeface, however Acorde is not only suitable for corporate design programmes but for information design and editorial design purposes as well.
I'm working on a text face mainly intended for magazines.
It's a low-contrast wedge-serif. My aim is good legibility at small sizes (9pt).
Looking forward for your valuable feedback.
Also I have some problems with hinting, letters start to wobble on screen in 400% zoom.
I did some manual hinting on top of autohinting(opentype) and it got better.
A classic workhorse typeface, a workhorse typeface or just a workhorse are descriptions given to a font tool that performs dependably (i.e., trustworthy and reliable) under heavy or prolonged use.
In a nutshell, a font is a workhorse if it performs well whether it is used in a few paragraphs or in a 600-pages novel.
A workhorse- or “easy-to-use”- type means that no matter what size, leading, letter-spacing, etc., the setting just “feels” right. It looks professional, it looks appropriate.
